Editor's Notes

March 21, 2019:

As plastic straw bans spread from city to city, paper alternatives are becoming increasingly popular. Not only are they eco-friendly, but they also come in a stunning array of designs — something that can't be said about plastic straws. Since all of these products serve a virtually identical purpose, the most important factor in our decision-making process was appearance. This list includes a wide variety of designs such as fruit prints, metallic details, faux wood patterns, and more. The Kisssport Party Disposable and Tranquilo Earth Friendly Products were removed due to fulfillment issues, though the former has been replaced with the similarly stylish Webake Chevron.
